Healthcare providers are facing an industry transformation and a seismic shift in business models with a growing importance placed on customer care and satisfaction. While regulatory and compliance challenges remain, a greater emphasis on cost optimization, customer care, and revenue growth is forcing healthcare providers to identify the most effective ways to engage with patients.

Key Findings

* Transformation in the healthcare industry is being powered by the widespread adoption of cloud, analytics, mobile, and social technologies that allow more effective use of resources across the healthcare continuum.
* Although healthcare IT has the potential to reduce costs in the long term, upfront costs will serve as a barrier to adoption and implementation.
* Although the penetration rate for cloud computing solutions is relatively low among healthcare providers, the adoption of the on-demand model is set to witness an upward momentum in the coming years.
